Re: 2019 Strategic and Political Analysis-1

the biggest thing to me from BJP manifesto is their promise of potable water to all thru pipes. While i am a (lot) skeptical about it due to the distances from water sources in, lets say, states like RJ or lack of any perennial water sources in districts such as Anantapur etc. I hope these things a...

Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

Three language is good but it should be English, state language and any other language from other states. Schools cannot afford to have classes for every language. So the third language can be whatever the majority chooses. With the two language now in TN, many students end up not learning Tamil. Th...

Excellent post.

I would say don't bring Ram or Krishna. Family deities are usually one of the Amman. People pray to them more than any other. Even Murugan temples are visited as a pilgrimage. Everyday temple visits are to the local vinayagar kovils or ayyappan kovils.
